Is Your Business a Target?

Targeted attacks – including Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) – are some of the most dangerous risks for enterprises. However, while the threats and techniques that cybercriminals use are constantly evolving, too many businesses are relying on yesterday’s security technologies to protect against today’s threats.

At the same time, the cost of launching a targeted attack has reduced and many attackers are finding that even inexpensive toolsets can be highly effective. As a result, the volume of attacks has increased… and all businesses are vulnerable.

What Is a Targeted Attack?

Targeted attacks are long-term processes that compromise security and give the attacker unauthorised control over the victim’s IT, helping the attacker to avoid detection by traditional security technologies.

Although some attacks may use Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) – which can be very effective, but expensive to implement – other attacks may use a single technique, such as advanced malware or a zero-day.

What an Attack Could Cost You

Businesses that fall victim to a targeted attack, can suffer a wide range of costs and operational issues:

  • Financial losses – via cybercrime
  • Disruption of business processes
  • Regulatory and compliance issues
  • Legal action by customers, suppliers or employees
  • Damage to competitive position and brand image
  • Reactive costs to prevent further attacks – including:
    • Training – to improve security department skills and users’ security awareness
    • Staffing – including new job roles, segregation of duties and demand for additional expertise
    • Eliminating weak points – to improve system security, remove vulnerabilities and implement targeted security solutions

Because targeted attacks are overseen by highly trained cybercriminals that adapt each phase of their attack, businesses need a security strategy that’s underpinned by constantly evolving security intelligence.

Business Benefits

Reduce the Risk of Targeted Attacks

Kaspersky Lab is a world leader in security technologies that do more to secure workstations and mobile devices, block malware infections, protect confidential information, prevent unauthorised access to corporate networks.

Our security experts also help businesses to train their users, raising awareness of security issues. In addition, Advanced Cybersecurity Training helps to train a business’s internal security personnel so the business can build or develop its own Security Operations Centre.

Detect ‘Live’ Attacks More Rapidly

The sooner a business knows it’s under attack – the sooner it can prevent ongoing damage. That’s why Kaspersky Lab doesn’t just offer award-winning, preventive security: it also delivers innovative detection that does more to identify ‘live’ attacks on your systems.

Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform – as part of an adaptive security strategy – provides advanced detection that goes far beyond conventional, prevention-focused security. By using multiple sensors to detect activities at the network and endpoint levels of your infrastructure, we can rapidly detect complex threats that may be attacking different points from various sources.

Get ‘Back on Track’, Fast

When Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform identifies that your business is under attack, our security experts can offer a full Incident Response Service to analyse the attack and help manage the cost of remediation.

  • Incident assessment
  • Evidence collection
  • Forensic analysis
  • Malware analysis
  • Remediation plan
  • Investigation report

If your own security team is able to carry out many of the incident response tasks, our experts can provide a Malware Analysis Service or Digital Forensics Service to analyse the malware and / or evidence that your team has isolated.

Improve Defences Against Future Threats

In addition, Kaspersky Lab security experts can deliver Penetration Testing Services and Application Security Assessment Services to help businesses to ‘harden’ their systems and prepare to defend against future attacks.

Because Kaspersky Lab understands that even small businesses can be subjected to attacks that can stay active for a very long time and remain relatively undetectable, the company also offers a dedicated Targeted Attack Discovery Service. This service delivers a single audit without any requirement to buy any targeted attack detection products.
